In Northeast Dallas, Texas, is MoMo Italian Kitchen. In 1985, oner Antonio Gattini moved to Texas with one goal in mind. Open an authentic Italian kitchen bringing his famous mothers’ recipes back to life from the cookbook his mother handed down to him.
Antonio’s mother was Fernanda Gosetti who moved to Milan in 1952 with her two sisters. They were amazing cooks and got inspiration for cooking amazing Italian meals from a cooking magazine, La Cucina Italiano. The magazine started in 1929 but they stopped publishing it during World War II. After the war, Fernanda and her sisters decided to re-start the publication which is still sold to this day. Fernanda was considered the Julia Child of Northern Italy and was one of the most innovators of Italian cooking.
Aaron Goss and Wende Stevenson bought the restaurant from Antonio’s son, Carlo, in 2017. Ironically, Wendy had worked in the restaurant 30 years previously and never dreamed she would one day become the owner. They were committed to keeping MoMo Italian Kitchen the same and have made no changes keeping Fernanda’s recipes the same. With over three hundred and fifty evaluations on the world wide web they have a strong four-point-five rating.
